Y5 & Y6 Cross Country Event

On Tuesday 5th November 2019, Miss Brierley and Miss Freebairn took two boys’ Cross Country teams to an event at Marple Hall School. The boys ran a distance of approximately 1.5 kilometres and were ranked individually and as teams.

Out of 11 schools, our Thorn Grove ‘A’ team came 3rd and our Thorn Grove ‘B’ team came 9th. Two of our boys also finished within the top 10 of over 40 runners. Well done to the boys for putting in a fantastic effort!

Thorn Grove Athletes Sprint forwards

This evening our determined and committed Year 5 and 6 athletes competed in the Stockport Sportshall Athletics heats at Hazel Grove High School.

Despite losing one of their inspirational coaches (Mr Godwin) to a late unexpected injury. The squad battled on under the watchful eye of Assistant Coach (Mrs Bennett) and late stand-in, Mr Wilson.

The athletes worked wonderfully as a team and narrowly missed out on victories in the individual events. Athletics is a sport decided by hundredths of seconds and millimetres in distance and our squad competed valiantly all evening.

We finished 5th and special mentions must go to Orla and Rayan, who received special awards for their individual performances.
